I've hit a new retro low. I'm currently creating a virtual machine on my computer to play a game that only runs on Windows 95.
Someone needs to make a DOSbox for win95/98.
Rrrrgh. I think the two biggest issues I've had with with Win 95/98 games not working on later OSes is bullshit with Quicktime, which is annoying because I'm a fan of Myst-clones and they all use some Mystery Ancient Bosnian version of QuickTime which does not play well with, uh, anything. I have quite a few of these I can't run.
I'm really curious whether Tong Nou and Obsidian will run on Windows 7 at all. Tong Nou had speed issues for me, though it worked alright on my older laptop. Never played Obsidian cause I uh only got it like a week ago. Spring's more an adventure gaming time of year for me.
Other issue is that weird split 16-bit/32-bit mode thing that some games have, though I think Birthright's the only game I have where that's an issue.
Then Creatures 2 just doesn't work in Windows 7 unless you have the gog version idk why !!!
Played a little UT. Always sort of preferred this to UT2K4 anyway. Now I'm in the mood for some, uh, Quake Live, Quake 2, the original unreal... Also Unreal Championship 2, since I think I can play that on my 360 and the 360 controller is actually reasonably designed unlike the, uh, regular XBox controller I have which is the /original flavor Dreamcast model/.
Suik 3 - Up to Alma Kinnan with Chris. Despite my initial dislike of Chris due to her Ch. 1 being wonky, I really like Chris now!
... Fuck, robin williams is still dead.
